FIND AN EXIT FROM A PLATFORM

DESCRIBE ONLINE

Overview

There is step-free access to Homeston Road from each platform. From platforms 1 - 3 you can reach Smith Street via the concourse, whilst from Platform 4 you can reach Station Road. See the Environs page for details.

There is stairs access between platforms 1 - 3 and platform 4 via the bridge.

Platforms 1 and 2 are bay platforms serving trains towards Paisley and Glasgow Central, whilst platforms 3 and 4 are through platforms. We believe platform 3 normally serves northbound trains towards Paisley and Glasgow, whilst platform 4 serves southbound trains towards Stranraer.

We noted, however, that platforms 3 and 4 are divided into north and south sections which may mean they're sometimes used bi-directionally.

There are automatic gates to each platform, including two Wide Aisle Gates in the concourse. There are only standard automatic gates to platform 4. Although staff are available at the gate line in the concourse, if you need assistance leaving platform 4, you'll need to use the help point on your left, just before the gates. This is not the normal help point found on Scotrail stations, from the top of the unit, you'll find a raised keyhole, then the push button. You'll normally be asked to show your ticket or pass at the screen below the button.

The doors will open as follows, as you face the front of the train:

There is tactile paving along the edge of platform 1, but none at other platforms in this station.
